best miata to grab up for cheap for a daily driven drift build?

Asked by Oct 21, 2016 at 10:25 PM about the 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

im looking to buy my first miata but dont know quite enough yet to fully
commit to such a thing. ive owned a nissan 240 mitsubishi eclipse a couple
powerstrokes and older chevy pick ups. all considerably larger and more
costly from what ive seen so far. the plan is do a mild build with around 15
pounds of boost and a bunch of crazy body mods. anybody want to help
with a few pointers?

I think that 15 pounds of boost would blow up a stock engine so you are looking at a rebuild with forged pistons etc. An older car might be the ticket for you.
